Don't Make Me Prove It: Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

It's the last day of the summer coffee lovers blog hop. I've just hopped through about 140 posts so far but I'm going to keep going because I've really appreciated all the comments left here and on Instagram. And, for the first time ever...I posted a card every single day of the hop!! So fun!
So, I had an extra panel of stamped tropical flowers from my Youer than You card's so I decided to change it to a coffee card. I finished it and liked it but once again thought it needed something. So...tonight I worked on it a bit and yea! 

A little sponging on  the top panel, a die cut oval stamped with the sentiment and a few of the tropical flowers added and voila! It's so much better, don't you think? And, now my cards on the hop are bookended with the same color theme as the first. This time Be Yourself is paired with Need to Venti. And, there's a little shimmer on the cup from wink of stella.

Thanks for popping by and now settle in, have a most fantastic cup of coffee and be happy until we meet again!

Java A Great Day! Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

I can't believe the hop is almost over. sad. But, I've got at least one card left after this one so will finish it out. :) This kickstand card needs something. It's on its way to cute but isn't quite there. Maybe another layer or maybe different layers. hmmm. I like it better today than last night but still... missing something, don't you think?

I love the tag which is an a muse studio die cut from berry cardstock and it's covered with super cute coffee beans and coffee circle from Your Next Stamp's Thanks a Latte stamp and die set. The cup is also from that set and I cut it out of my leftover watercolor paper from the Perk Up card. Fun stuff. And, that cute little face is also from this stamp set. Isn't it a hoot!
Here's a side view of the kickstand card. Those are so fun to make. I need to stamp on the inside but haven't gotten to that yet!

It's not too late to hop along so hope you'll join in! And, if you don't have time to create, at least take time to check out all the creativity of the hoppers. I'm totally inspired and re-charged!
Have a wonderfully creative day!

Favorite Perk! Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I don't know about you but I get on a stamp kick and no matter what I make, I'll keep using whatever stamp I'm stuck on. Right now it's the retiring polka dot patterns. I think it looks awesome on backgrounds and borders and here it is again. ;)

The feature image is from Art Impressions.  Such fun images to color and anytime you mix friendship and coffee, it's a good thing.

I'm posting a other card later today. I don't love it so may change my mind. But then again, I might post it so everyone can feel better about their art. :)

There's just today and tomorrow left for hopping so get your coffee stamps and play along!
Have a wonderful day!
